The Tree Had to Come Down

One of the things that I liked best about the house my husband and I bought years ago was the trees. There were eight huge trees on the property, and they added so much charm and personality to the property. They were strong and sturdy looking, so I knew we would be able to keep them. Last year, we had a storm come through with high winds, and it caused considerable damage to one of our trees. My husband was pretty sure we were going to need to hire a Nassau County tree removal company. I was really sad because I agreed with him.

I know it is silly to feel so attached to trees, but that is what happened. I know they aren’t like our dogs and cats, but I still considered them part of our family. I was hoping against hope that the tree company would tell us that it could be salvaged, but that was not the case. They came out to take a look at it and to also give us a free estimate on it for whatever work was going to have to be done on it.

It did not take them long to determine that the tree was too damaged and was considered a risk. It would not take much to bring the rest of the tree down because of how compromised it was. Since it needed to be done and they gave a great price to do the work, we scheduled to have it done that same week. The company we chose is insured and been in business for a very long time, so I had no problem with them doing the work. I also had them trim the other trees too since that is what was needed to make them as healthy as possible. I do miss my tree, but I am going to plant another there this spring!
